6am Repeat is a recurring feature here at Folk Hive in which we stream the latest track that plays incessantly in the earbuds when we awake at that hour and imbibe massive amounts of coffee and cigarettes in preparation for the advancing day. Consider it your jam of the day — a sweet, sweet gift from me to you. I love you, dude.
Sleep has not been important lately, bedtimes utter bullshit rules of grown-uphood that I refuse to acknowledge. I am bleary-eyed this morning and every morning here lately. It feels so wonderful.
This morning I stumbled upon I Climbed A Tree from Gerard and the Watchmen and one song in, I was enamored, even so early in the ante meridiem. By the last song, it was an album bought. And by the time “Hesitate” had set in, I remembered that once I had loved a banjo. I loved this kind of banjo, maybe more than the all the other kinds, because it’s so warm and if love has a sound at all, I imagine that it contains notes just like these…
Good morning. Good, good morning.
(P.S. Oh, hey there, friend! We just wanted pop in and let you know that if you should purchase this album (you’re gonna do that, right?), there’s a demo version of ‘Stables’. It will stab you in the heart and then sew it right back up, stronger than it was before. Basically, OMG YOU GUYS, IT’S GOOD. Get yourself this album. Also, we love you.)
